We are currently reading a book to our 4 children called "Testimonies of Godly Courtship". We are very pleased with it. It advocates complete purity before marriage, seeking God's will in finding your mate, and courtship rather than modern worldly dating. If you would like a free copy send me your mailing address through the message board. I'll pay the postage. There are no strings attached. One of your children might be the future spouse of one of my children so I would like your families to read this book.
Just tell me where to send it by mail to your home, office, church, or wherever you want. As I said, it's free and I'll pay the postage even if it's going overseas. Remember, you can send the address as a personal message so you don't have to post the address on the board for everyone to see.

Hello I just wanted to let you all know - I got a copy of this book - "Testimonies of Godly Courtship".
I was really blessed by the pure courtship testimonies of the couples in this book. I was also blessed to see how these couples really seek the Lord and I was able to gain from reading about their walk with the Lord. It is a really good book. It also had some ideas that we've not even thought about. Ideas to ponder.... I highly recommend getting it this book - even if your children are not close to courting age. It's not too early to learn more.
Thank you so much for sending us this book....I hope more people will contact you - to get a copy.
I had hoped to tell you that your book was mailed already but I couln't get it to the post office today. I've got it addressed and ready to go. I hope to have it off to you tomorrow. I hope it will bless your family as it has ours.

Dear Bro Art,
Thank You for asking! I thought I had already gotten on and thanked you. I jump on and off line trying to answer PM's, and e- mails, and post on here and I thought I had posted here and thanked you, but I didn't. If you would not have asked I would have never checked this post again.
I did receive the book and am enjoying it greatly.
It is sad for those of us who did not grow up in a christian home, and we did not start our marriage the right way, and for the right reasons.
God is able to make good of our wrongs. I am thankful for that. Though it would have been alot nicer to do it Gods way and have His special blessing on our marriage.
I believe doing things Gods way spares us from alot of future heart ache and struggles. It's good to learn of God young and obey him, and walk in his ways, the results are alot better, and the future alot brighter, and the road alot easier.
Thank you for sending it out for free. That truly is a blessing! Your a kind brother.
Blessings on your day and on your family, ~ sister Darlene ~
